This is just a vote to remove it from Hadoop. If someone decides to adopt
it, they can choose where to host it (github, sourceforge, google code, or
apache extras, etc.). Since the code was in subversion, it will always be
available in the revision from before it was deleted.

Apache extras isn't under the ASF in any meaningful sense. Projects under
Apache extras do not have any restrictions on their governance model or even
software license. In particular, there are no PMCs over in Apache extras.

Attic is for projects that have been retired. This is just a contrib
component that we are voting on retiring.
